Abstract

A five week course on Nanophotonic Modeling.

Classical ray optics and the associated components, such as convex lenses and metallic mirrors have played a crucial role in modern technology; however, the limitations of these components in terms of size, flexibility, and cost have become increasingly clear over the last two decades. Fortunately, systems at the wavelength scale (nanophotonics) or smaller (plasmonics, metamaterials) stand ready to provide new capabilities for the next generation of optical and opto-electronic components, including new types of optical waveguides, lasers, detectors, and solar cells. In this class, we will study advanced methods for simulating such nanophotonic and plasmonic optical systems, including photonic bandstructure solvers, transfer matrix analysis, rigorous coupled wave analysis, finite-difference time domain, and finite-element methods.
